New videos on sustainable management of CITES-listed timber species

8 May 2014

The ITTO-CITES Program recently released a series of videos focusing on the management and conservation of African cherry (Prunus africana) in Cameroon, ramin (Gonystylus spp.) in Indonesia and mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) in Peru. The ITTO-CITES Program, since 2007, has been assisting countries to implement the provisions of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) for listed tropical tree species.
 
Among other things, the videos show the Program’s work on improving the management of these species and producing non-detriment findings, which are required for the issuance of export permits. The videos are available in English, French and Spanish, the three official languages of ITTO. A short Japanese version of the summary video has also been produced.
 
The ITTO-CITES program is funded through the generous contributions from the European Union, the governments of the USA, Germany, Norway and the Netherlands, as well as private sector contributions from Abbott-Solvay, Indena, EuroMed and Plavuma.
